War Outside

Ian McCalman
Language: English



There's a war outside I can hear the distant guns tonight,
There's a war outside
And I don't know whether to run or fight,
If I open this door I may be deafened by the cannon's roar,
There's a war outside tonight.

There's a child outside I can hear her crying and she's so alone,
There's a child outside
The first refugee is the last one home,
But if I open this door they might flood in from that foreign shore,

There's a child outside tonight. Everything's OK, everything's fine,
Just close your doors until the end of time,
Satellite TV; turn off the news, nothing but bad news…bad news,
And no one wants to hear another bad news blues.
There's a war outside

We don't need to know who's right or wrong, there's a war outside
The sirens sing their warning song,
Tired and hungry in the hand-out line, the wrong place at the wrong time,
There's a war outside tonight.
There's a war outside and the guns are closer than they were last night,
There's a war outside
And I don't know whether to run or fight,
If I open this door I may be deafened by the cannon's roar,
There's a war outside tonight.
